  •  And right now, spending on infrastructure (2+ / 0-)

    would be a complete bargain, as interest rates are at record lows.  People are practically paying the USA to hold Treasury bonds.

     Spending on infrastructure now would have enormous payoff in the short term and longer term, plus be the cheapest possible price in years, due to the low rates.

     I really do feel it is criminal that we are not repairing our nation with advanced infrastructure to move into a greener future with the enormous opportunity we have at hand right now!

     And god knows we need the damn jobs. JOBS!  Hello, Washington -- wanna fix the budget deficit:  JOBS!

    •  We in rural California had created thousands (0+ / 0-)

      Good paying jobs, just through meeting  the needs of the medical marijuana clinics, all duly agreed upon through the vote of the people. And we didn't need governmental monies to do this.

      Then Obama's DOJ came in and smashed many of the dispensaries, so  that some six thousand of those jobs are now lost. But hey, the folks inside the prison industry need to know the prisons will be full!

      Offer your heart some Joy every day of your life, and spread it along to others.
